He may have been labelled a bad boy both on and off the pitch, but Mario Balotelli has proved that everyone gets a bit scared sometimes.

The Manchester City footballer reportedly locked himself in the toilet at Manchester airport because he was so scared of being mobbed by fans.

Balotelli was standing in arrivals with a friend, hoping not to get noticed. But, unsurprisingly he was spotted pretty much straight away. Perhaps the orange hat and gold trainers weren’t subtle enough Mario?

As word spread, Mario decided to lock himself in a cubicle in the gents loo’s until everyone left. He was later rescued by airport staff and taken to a chauffeur driven car.

Embarrassing much? Well at least he managed to laugh it off.
